Wanted: Good News
A recent trip to the doctor’s office reminded me why I don’t regularly tune into the local news.
As we sat in the waiting room together, the other patients and I started typing away on our iPhones to pass time. Morning cartoons served as background noise. The observant receptionist decided to change the channel to something a bit more “adult.” She naturally stopped on a local CBS affiliate news program—it only took a minute to be jolted out of my phone-induced stupor. The specifics of the report escape me (I think I blocked them out), but it was the type of heinous crime that we now come to expect.
